I don’t enjoy King’s newer stuff, but his first books were brilliant – and I don’t even like horror suspense. He has an excellent imagination and is able to create a believable existence of phenomenon that our logic would tell us is impossible. That takes talent. Yes, he goes on forever to set up a scene and his descriptions can get tedious. But he is still a master story teller. If he can make me believe a car can be jealous and homicidal – even when smashed into a small square in a junk yard, he’s pretty good at getting readers to suspend logic.
